The Restauri Artistici Squatriti, 29 Via Ripetta at the coner to Via del Vantaggio in Rome, known to Romans as the “Ospedale delle Bambole”, or the “Dolls’ Hospital”, is the place where Federico Squatrito and his mother Gelsomina nurse ailing dolls and other porcelain objects back to health. The walls and counters are covered with parts of broken toys and figurines, along with antique plates, vases, and any number of mysterious objects waiting for Squatrito to give them new life.
